PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A traffic stop on Interstate 95 South on Wednesday led police to bring charges against three people suspected of stealing merchandise from the outlet stores in Kittery.
On Wednesday, police in Kittery broadcast a description of a vehicle carrying suspects thought to be involved in thefts from the outlet stores, according to a Portsmouth police announcement.
